Instead of getting a 1.1 million DK score I went the other way
« on: December 01, 2017, 01:33:07 PM »
Basically what I mean by the title is this, all that I have accomplished in classic gaming is basically equivalent to getting a 1.1 million score on Donkey Kong.  So what does a 1.1 million score in Donkey Kong get you?  14th place in Donkey Kong all time.
Instead though, I didn't go the 1.1 million route.  Instead I spent my 1.1 million worth of Donkey Kong time, and this is what I got.

I got a 1.3 Million Donkey Kong Junior score
I got a 6 million Donkey Kong 3 Hard score
I got the Arm Wrestling record.
I got an 850k Donkey Kong score.
I got a 350k Timber score
I got a 280k Zaxxon score
I got a 280k Robotron score
I got a 310k Moon Patrol score
I became a three time champ of Sky Skipper
I got a 40k Carnival score
I got a 300k TGTS Galaga score
I got a 480k Punch Out score
I got a 270k Super Punch Out score
I got a 670k Wonder Boy score
I one cc'd Pole Position
I one cc'd Twin Cobra II
I got a 440k Space Invader 95 score
I one cc'd Rod Land
I got 200k in Pac Man
I got 16th in BOTA, and two top 25s in Yolympics.

So basically what I'm saying is everything I have done in Arcade/MAME gaming=1.1 million on Donkey Kong.  So I'm an example of what would happen if one of those 1.1 million players decided to stop at 850k on Donkey Kong, and decided to devote their time on other games.  A person can do a lot of things with that 1.1 million worth of Donkey Kong time.

Rod Land.  I still have PTSD from Wolf making me try to 1 cc that one.  I felt like James Bond in the newer Casino Royale, in the chair w/ the seat cutout, and Wolf as Le Chiffre, with the rope torture.

Nice list, George.  I 1 cc'd Twin Cobra II, and I got a Pac-Man KS.  Go me.

Ha ha, easily the best of the Craig Bond movies IMO.  AINEC.  Great film.

The top two alone are worth more than a 1.1
First player to get both highest and lowest score during a Kong-Off <Kuh>

Speaking of which, sorry to derail a bit but all the Bonds movies are free on Amazon Prime right now.  I plan to re-watch them all chronologically over the holiday season.

I used to believe that, but then I saw Wes get 1,137,100 in less than a month.  Then I saw you get the RBS without spending 100 hours on DK3.
